Perunn has become to be so universally
recognized aa a specific euro for catarrh,
ooute or chronic, coughs, colds, bron
chltic, tlint It Is amazing that any one
should continue to suffer on with such
a terrlblo malady, neglecting to tnko a
course of treatment with It. Of course
I It may be that some people have not yet
com? to know of this great catarrh rem?
edy, but It Is strange thnt It should bo
so after such multitudes have been
cured by It and so many pape-re have
heralded It from ono end of tho country
to tho other. But the news travels
faster and faster every month, nnd no

GENERAL DUFFIELD'S ENDORSEMENT.
' General W. W. Duffield, General in the Mexican war and Gene?
ral of the Union Army in the late Civil war, in a letter written from
"The Cairo," Washington, D. O, says the following of Peruna:
"I have used Peruna in my family and have found it a valuable
medicine, and take pleasure in recommending it to all who suffer
from catarrh of the stomach or who require a tonic of efficiency."
Peruna the Soldier's Friend.
No wonder the American soldier Is a
friend of Ponina, when such a renowned
oflleer as General Longstreet gives Po?
ru?a his hearty endorsement. Every
one connected with the army and navy
can have no reasonable doubt as to the
merits of the remedy. No remedy ever
yet devisefl hns received -such unstinted
eulogy .from so many renowned states?
men and military men as Peruna.
There Is a natural reason for this. Pe?
runa Is a specific for catarrh wherever
located. It not only Instantly cures
acute catarrh but oven old enses of
chronic catarrh vanish under its per?
sistent use. The soldier Is especially
subject to catarrh In somo form or
phase. Exposed as ho. is to constant
changes, subjected as he Is to tho vicissi?
tudes of climate, wet and dry, night and
day, ho finds catarrh to be his most In?
sidious and ever present foe. In field
and barracks. Peruna is equally effica?
cious. Taken In time, it will absolutely
prevent catching cold. After the cold
lias become established Peruna will
break it up quicker than any remedy
known to man. Even after tho cold has
settled in somo orgnn, Peruna can be
relied upon to promptly dispel It.
This Is why Peruna Is so popular In
tho army and navy to-dny. It is pre?
cisely tho remedy thnt meets tho par
tlcular Ills to which this class of people
nre exposed. Our army and navy is the
natural pi-otection of our country; Peruna
is the natural protection of the army
and navy In tho vicissitudes of climate
The number of spociflc catarrh reme?
dies is small indeed; tho number of ca?
tarrh palliatives Is li<glon. The effect ot
catarrh palliatives is often Immediate,
but always temporary; they nover cura
This kind of catarrh medicine in?
cludes sprays, snuffs, inhalants, gargles
and locnl applications of all kinds.
They seem to euro for awhile, but the
disenso Is sure to return.

Gen. B. F. Chaso, Asst. Adjt. General,
G. A. K.. In a letter from 2S Hurrlson St.,
Anaeostla. D. C, writes:
''The excellence of Peruna ns a euro
or relief for catarrlinl disturbances Is ?'
well established. Many o? my friends
have been benefited by its use."?B. F.
Brig Gen. DJ. Kir by.

of Peruna, as many of my friends have used it with such good re?
sults, and I can recommend it to all those who are afflicted with ca?
tarrh."?General D. T. Kirby.
The above testimonials are only specimens of the many thou
band letters received touching the merits of Peruna as a catarrhal
tonic. No more useful remedy to tone tup the system has ever been
devised by the medical profession.
